2017 Malbec

2017 Malbec

We took a flyer and planted some Malbec on a nice down slope that faces east at our Swede Road vineyard.  The fruit develops early and huge, long clusters with large berries - much larger than any other vinifera that we grow.  The vines are a bit particular around winter weather so we take extra care to lay the vines down on the ground before winter each year to protect the buds under a blanket of insulating snow. 

2016 was our first significant harvest and we used to produce this excellent dry red wine.  18 months in a combination of new and older French oak barrels give this a light toast with plum and blackberry fruit.  Medium bodied it has a meidum finish.  Enjoy now or lay it down for 3-5 year to be rewarded.
